Due to a planned power outage on Friday, 1/14, between 8am-1pm PST, some services may be impacted.
The GX4000 was basically just a CPC+ home computer made into the form of a videogame console to try and get Amstrad into the emerging gaming market. Nintendo and Sega were far too powerful in the scene already, though, and had already begun launching into the 16 bit era.
Bad timing spelled disaster for this neat looking console, which didn’t even survive for a year.

Special items included:
"Arnold 5 Diagnostic ROM (Rev 1.3)," "Cartouche BASIC Amstrad," and "Cartridge Software Demonstrator."
None of these extras are games - They contain Amstrad GX4000 applications that I believe are important to preserve. If you're only after the actual games in this set, feel free to delete those titles named above.
Non-working dumps, duplicates, and modern homebrew games.
This is a re-work of my previous Amstrad GX4000 set, which I did a couple years back. A few new rips have been found since then - I've hand-tested these new additions, added 3 more titles overall, and organized the files much, much cleaner than last time.
